The first problem you will encounter with Riad Dollar des Sables is finding it. Upon booking they will write to you and offer a taxi service from the airport (€15 for 6km). The irony of course is that a taxi can't actually access the premises but one assumes their chosen driver will take you to the door. If not, expect... More

Dear Guest, I have just read your review and feel sorry for you, realizing that you have had a bad feeling, with this particular experience of staying in the historic city of Marrakesh; Each of the " negative" points you mentioned show me that you probably would felt much better choosing a nice Hotel in the new town of Marrakesh...

My partner and I decided on a three week vacation in Marrakesh. Maybe it's because we're a bit laid back, but the bustling souks and occasional excursions had us happy and engaged the whole time. I have staid in many many hotels. This is the first time I've ever staid in a non-chain hotel, and I don't think I'll ever... More

This riad is very difficult to find, but if you call, they will come and find you and guide you back. Once you have found the spot, you'll have no problems finding it again! The rooms are large, airy, well kept and not very numerous. After being greeted with mint tea( as usual) we were given an overview of what... More

Recently stayed 3 nights at this beautiful Riad within the Medina. My partner and I opted for the airport pickup and glad we did as the Riad maybe difficult to find for first time travellers. We were greeted by friendly staff and delicious mint tea. We stayed in the double room on the ground floor which met our expectations. Excellent... More

I stayed at Riad Dollar des Sables after arriving to Marrakesh for an excursion leaving 8am the next day. We were received with delicous mint tea and departed with delicious breakfast. Even though I did not stayed at Riad Dollar des Sables when I visited marrakesh, the riad is very conveniently located. Near the square and souks.

My partner and I really enjoyed our 5 night stay in Riad Dollar Des Sables. Like most other travellers, we had difficulties in locating this place. We first asked the bus driver of our airport shuttle but he had difficulties in giving us the exact directions, and was very vague in his explanation. Next we asked multiple souks near the... More

I first stayed at Riad Dollar Des Sables in 2011, when I toured Morocco with a friend. We stayed at Cathy's riad several times, as our travels brought us in and out of Marrakesh. Cathy has travel agency background and is keenly aware of what's needed to enhance her guests' experience. Our own experience here was such a happy one... More

What a lovely place to stay! Beautiful riad, amazing location and very helpful staff. Everyone here made us feel very welcome and at home, especially Ali who went out of his way to go and buy us some shampoo and walk us to the square to get a taxi. The breakfast was delicious!

I have now stayed here on both my trips to Marrakech and love the atmosphere and the INCREDIBLE staff. The staff are the shining star here.
